2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk

Car Culture
The Renegade is all new, and really small, putting Jeep squarely in the urban compact crossover market but with real off road ability. Especially in this top of the line Trail Hawk edition. It's hard to mistake it for any other car on the outside and thanks to a lot of winks and nods to it's own past The same goes for the inside. This six and a half inch UConnect system is a modern head unit with Garmin navigation. It's all touch and voice driven, there's no big knob or controller to select or type things. Under the hood, our high trim trail hog version has the big engine and even that's only 2.4 liters and four cylinders. 180 horsepower and 175 pound feet of torque through a nine speed automatic Only average MPG is 24. In addition to blind spot technology you can also option a renegade with forward collision technology that will actively brake for you and active lane departure technology that will steer you back in your lane. Those are unusual on this class. I wish liked driving the renegade as much as I liked looking at it But the powertrain is rubbery and big, surging between bursts of power and bursts of numbness. An option I wish our car arrived with is this unusual sunroof. It powers back like most others, but you could also pop it completely out and get a great big hole to the sky. Done up CNET style, this top-of-the-line Trail Rated Renegade Trailhawk is just under 30K with its combo of jeep brand Real four wheel drive and good, if quirky looks. They shouldn't be sitting on the lot for long. [MUSIC]
